BLUE AGAVE DREAMS - I took an artist liberty in this design of the blue agave best known for its use in making tequila. It’s a very popular cactus in Tucson therefore there is no surprise that Tucson has a weeklong festival in April to celebrate the agave.

The 22” chain also has quasi leaves with sleeping beauty turquoise cabochons as does the clasp and the butterfly. The clasp has two sterling lobster claw clasps to accommodate either a left or right handed wearer. $485 Located at the Leaping Lizard Art Gallery in Tubac.
